Annapurna Poon Hill Trek

Tour listed by Escape Himalaya Trek
About this tour

The Annapurna Poon Hill Trek is a short trekking option in the Annapurna Region which allows you explore the north-western acreages of Pokhara. It is a stunning trekking trail and the beauty of its views are utterly mesmerizing. You will be able to observe the settlements of the Gurung and Magar people with their many temples and monasteries. The pious atmosphere of the religious sites will add a unique tranquility to the serene trekking trails.

The intricate sub-tropical valleys at the base of the Annapurna and Machhapuchhre mountain ranges are fascinating and very picturesque. The Annapurna Poon Hill Trek will take you through verdant hills and terrains and you will experience the delight of blooming rhododendrons and foxgloves, and the spectacular vegetation of pine, oak, birch and juniper trees. The Trek is sometimes called the Annapurna Panorama Trek because of the panoramic vistas of the Annapurna ranges and its many surrounding peaks. The most famous and unrivalled section of the route is the absolutely breath-taking view of the rising sun from the vantage point at Poon Hill. Here, as the sun ascends the cyan sky, the change in the atmosphere and the breathing of life into all around is simply indescribable. The slow ascent of the sun from behind the Annapurna ranges transforms the ivory snow into molten gold and burning saffron – it is truly heavenly and divine.
